PEPLUM imagery in non-PEPLUM films...

Kim Novak in JEANNE EAGLE, which is not a Sword & Sandal film. It's one of the costumes Novak had to wear for the biography of the stage/film star. Kim Novak was often criticized for being miscast in many of her films which makes the fact that she never starred in a true PEPLUM the more remarkable. She was cast in a few turn-of-the-century films but not one like in this photo which is a shame because she really looks the part.
